This appointment will drive the expansion of Trusteer's business and technology to focus on the prevention of advanced malware attacks on enterprises and their employees.
"Large global companies are constantly at risk of cyber attacks and recognize that current malware protection technologies, like anti-virus, are simply not effective. They are looking for solutions that strengthen their defenses against advanced malware attacks while ensuring a balance of security, usability and manageability," said Rakesh Loonkar, Trusteer President. "Jim has demonstrated success and his keen sense in growing a business' sales pipeline will enhance our ability to demonstrate how our innovative, proven malware prevention capabilities are superior to any existing solutions in the market."
Hyman comes to Trusteer from Zscaler where he was the Vice President of North America Sales, responsible for identifying and assessing customer needs and opportunities in the cloud security and security as a service (SaaS) industry.
